Who else can play Joe Orton, Winston Churchill, and Sid Vicious?

I read that as Gary Coleman, and thought, "Whatchoo talking about, Subby?"

I always knew that Zorg fella was ambitious and driven.

Yup, just reaffirms my belief that Gary Oldman is farking awesome. Dude is a goddamn chameleon and always turns in a good performance, even in shiat movies.

And Count farking Dracula, and Jean Baptiste Emmamuel Zorg.

My favorite roles of his, is the first time i saw him.... State of Grace, starring Sean Penn and Ed Harris.   It was clear this was a dude had exceptional acting talent.

Gary Oldman is an unbelievably great actor. It's a shame he stood up for Mel Gibson and probably beat his wife.

Gary Oldman did nothing wrong in defending Mel Gibson. Also, he still got custody of his kids despite those claims by his ex-wife.

BAFTA behind Oscar's ass.

It's the Rumpiest Pumpiest of the international acting awards.

I've been a fan of his since his portrayal of Drrexel Spivey. I had see him play Sid Vicious but he didn't register to me at that time. Since True Romance, though, I'll see a movie just because he's in it, to the point I didn't watch the Harry Potter movies till I heard he had a part I them.

Saying "who here hasn't said horrible, disgustingly bigoted and sexist things from time to time?" doesn't really inspire confidence that Gary Oldman doesn't harbor bigoted or sexist thoughts, and it certainly says he doesn't think less of people who do.

Missed the open letter her son wrote that said that it absolutely didn't happen, didn't you?  Police investigated, nothing found.  A court gave him full custody, something they don't do if there's even a hint that the allegations were true.

He was telling us to be careful in judging one person for committing an act that most of us have done, but won't admit to.

Context is everything.

Nobody disappears into a role like Oldman does.  Nobody.  It's supernatural.

Daniel Day Lewis strikes me as Kirk Lazarus... Slapping you in the face with how method he is. Gary Oldman just melts into the role. He's believable, and able to run the gamut from comedy to drama and anything in between.

And, while we're talking of roles...

CSB -- about 20 years ago, my BFF and I were watching movies and hanging out -- and watched Sid & Nancy.  Yeah -- not the feel-good hit of the season, but decent movie.

So we are switching channels, and we'd land on something....and damned if Gary Oldman wasn't in whatever the hell we'd landed on.  like 5 or 6 things were on, and Oldman would pop up on Screen.  BFF said 'fark -- when did Gary Oldman become contractually obligated to be in every damned movie.'

For years, up until BFF died...we'd always make an inside joke about who Oldman was playing in whatever movie we were seeing.

/OK -- maybe you had to be there...but uttering the name of Gary Oldman would just crack our shiat up due to that weird couch potato day.

Didn't know he finally won his well-deserved Oscar. Good on him.

Have you forgotten where you are? He was accused of something. Burn the witch!
 
2018-03-07 02:37:49 PM  
he was miscast as Sirius Black. There, I said it. Didn't look the part at all. Of course, by the end of the series, neither did the kid playing Harry Potter.

British police. They repeatedly got bested by Benny Hill, a clown, and a snaggletoothed 20-something chick who was spilling out of her top. I wouldn't polish their investigative knob.

Yup. The guy has played Sid Vicious, Dracula, Beethoven, Lee Harvey Oswald, Zorg and other roles so well that sometimes you have no idea it's him.

Haven't seen that in forever and don't remember much. I remember they were playing a game of word tennis or something like that. I remember finding it interesting, should probably revisit.

He has been one of my favorite actors for years, and I thought I was familiar with all of his work. One of the things I love about him is his ability to carry an "American" accent so well. That really is much harder for an Englishman  (or woman) to carry than vice versa.

Really? I always thought the opposite. I've lost count of how many actors I was surprised to find out were English, but Americans' British accents always sound fake as hell to my Yank ears.

Oldman's a good actor, but the character he played in The Darkest Hour doesn't much resemble Churchill in mannerism, speech, or even appearance despite all the makeup.
 
2018-03-07 08:50:59 PM  
He looks like Dr Smith.
